What was the date of your purchase?

After seeing the possible outsourcing I just did another $50 ecert now and it seems to still be posting as a Delta Airlines purchase/the same as above, Are you sure you picked ecert?

::EDIT:: Purhased/Posted/Credited during the scare. Per some smart folks below, it seems to be about which website you purchase from. There's a mobile page run by CashStar you need to avoid.

Ordered 12/18

Despite the terms, purchases of $50 Delta electronic gift certificates have been reliably reimbursed for years. It looks as if you may have posted without reviewing recent posts which confirm that this still works, but also report some very recent changes which might preclude reimbursement.

Before doing anything, I suggest that you read the Wikipost at the top of thread which includes step-by-step instructions -and- also several dozen recent posts to understand the current concerns.

This is a risk free purchase. If you are not reimbursed you have paid $50 for something worth $50 in air travel.

I purchased 4x$50 on 12/15 and they were reimbursed today 12/19.

Great news!

I purchased 4x $50 on 12/17, went pending for a day as:

DELTA AIR LINES

Category: Travel - Airline

12/19 all 4 posted as the same. No refund yet (not concerned, just getting the DP out there given the recent concerns)

Purchased a $50 ecert on Sunday, the transaction posted yesterday, no credit applied yet. The posted transaction looks like this (similar to other people, some formatting removed):

I purchased a $50 ecert in November and the posted transaction looks exactly the same. The credit was applied two days later.

sumnem Dec 19, 17 11:15 am

I had purchased 2x$50 ecerts on that showed up under transactions on Sunday 11/17 and credit was applied today 11/19.

I had made 2x$50 transactions earlier in December and the merchants are the same. (I am on the East Coast, do not know if that has anything to do with where the transactions are processed)

One other data point - I used my iPad to make this purchase and may have been rerouted to a mobile optimized website which routes through a different vendor. Purchase was made in CA.

jakhfue Dec 19, 17 11:47 am

I just purchased a 50 dollar gift card, and the company information was:

DELTA AIR LINES GC
25 PEARL STREET
PORTLAND
ME
04101
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Also, at the bottom of the gift card email it says:

Delta Gift Card, powered by CashStar.

So I don't think it is going to work anymore.

can you confirm is was electronic gift card?

where did you purchase the gift card from (i.e. what state, country) and what kind of device did you use?

jakhfue Dec 19, 17 2:12 pm

Yes it was an electronic gift card, the same method I used a few months ago with my gold card, and I used a computer and I live in Kentucky.

lordvaderman Dec 19, 17 2:29 pm

Which URLs are people using when buying?

Through this one on a desktop computer
https://www.delta.com/egift/eGiftPurchase.action
the terms and conditions say:
"eGifts and Cards are issued by Delta Gift Cards, Inc. ("Delta"), an affiliate of Delta Air Lines, Inc., that is authorized to issue eGifts and Cards for sale by Delta and Delta-licensed vendors to be used toward the total purchase price of air transportation on Delta Air Lines marketed flights."

But on this one through my mobile device
https://buy-m.giftcards.delta.com/
the terms and conditions say (at the bottom):
"Delta Gift Cards, powered by CashStar"

I'm wondering if that is the difference...
